You said "stuck" in the drum somewhere? Like under the agitator vanes? You should be able to take the lid off the agitator, it should either clip in or have a screw holding it on, and there you will see the nut, or keeper that holds the agitator on the motor shaft. Remove that clip or nut and you can lift the agitator out of the washer. From there you will see all of the wash drum and should be able to remove any foreign objects. If these "coins" are between the inner and outer tub, then you will have to remove both the top cover and lid, and remove the agitator and the inner drum to get to the outer drum in order to reach these objects. Not a hard job, but it will take you a little while. You could try reaching with your fingers around the agitator bottom and see if you can "feel" the coins or objects and possible use a small brush or stick or popsicle stick to move them out so that you can reach them, Kinda like "fishing" under the refrigerator or the couch. In the alternative, you could enlist four friends and unhook the washer from the water supply and the electric, and turn it upside down and try to shake the coins or objects out the top of the drum. Tilting the machine to one side will let them fall to the cabinet sides and possibly drop out the bottom when it is uprighted. Now I know why Mom always "checked" my pockets before she washed Dad and my clothes. We left a little of everything in there, from time to time. Good Luck with this.

Washer from flashing 1E & leaking


LG Washing Machine Displaying Fault Code IE or 1E WM2016CW WATER INLET ERROR // Water not entering washing machine correctly
The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that the washer is not filling with water. Check to be sure the water supply valves are open. Also, check to be sure the water supply hoses aren't kinked or clogged. Next, remove the hoses from the washing machine and run water into a bucket to test the pressure and flow of the water. If all of these check out and you have good water pressure and flow to the machine, you should replace the water inlet valve.

If its the main drum bearings gone then this will entail a complete strip to access them. The parts are available online, just have your serial no, model etc ready and trawl through various web appliance sites to find the best price. You will need a fair amount of mechanical / DIY knowledge to carry out this task. There are lots of parts and electrical connections.

LE errors mean the motor is locking up and cannot turn the drum. If the drum turns freely by hand then it could be https://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/How-To-Fix-A-Washing-Machine/406-200-684484-/LG-LE-MOTOR-ERROR-Motor-Stator-overheat-or-connection-error-WM2016CW
If that is not the problem then the motor needs replaced.

The problem was in the pump during the spin cycle pumping water out, I had my son put his hand on the rubber like tank and he could tell something was inside, and it was quarters,nickles,dimes and one penny all in total about .75 cents after taking the money out the noise Less, We still have some noise but not like we would have to buy a new washing machine. If anything we may need to buy a new pump.

We have a penny stuck under the white spinning things.


Hello pinkygirll,
The Service manual has the procedure starting on page 37 for the tumbler removal, take a look and see if you feel comfortable to give it a try. If you are handy or someone you know has basic mech. skill sets you can perform. You, I and many others need to check those pockets. Here is the service manual link.
http://www.fixya.com/support/r1655507-found_service_manual_neptune_top_load
The manual doesn’t call out the torx driver size required for tumbler removal. I just removed my tumbler cap and measured, it’s a #20 torx driver. If you call a repair service in make sure you have your Model# and Serial# number ready to pass along to them. You mentioned”” There is a penny stuck and the washer stops with water in it after it tries to spin.”” The tumblers do not rotate in spin cycle only the wash cycle. If you do a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket do you hear the grinding noise? Good Luck.
